How do you like my "I'm scared of the burning bush" face? :)
This week, we're looking at what it means to have your world rocked. Moses sees and experiences something that will change his direction forever. He fights it (wouldn't you?), but ultimately he realizes that now that he's seen God and knows God's heart for his people, there is no going back.
Discussion questions for community groups below. Enjoy!
This week is the first of a 7-week series on the book of Exodus. We're looking at one of the big-picture stories in all the bible--that of rescue from Egypt and of a God who always hears the cry. Take some time to read through Exodus 1:6-14 before you watch the video with your group. Discussion questions are in the document below.
We're in between major sermon series here at FBC!
Glen, Steve, Dane and I (Jake) are working hard on our next big teaching series on the book of Exodus, which begins in two weeks. This means that we have two open weeks (the week of the 8th and 15th) to do some important things with our community groups!
This week, (The week of the 8th), I would encourage you to pay extra close attention to pastor Glen's sermon "The Power of Words." At the beginning of your group, open in prayer and then Right Now Media there is a short clip called "The Impact of words available at www.rightnowmedia.org/Content/illustration/206471. Work through the discussion guide attached below, which includes an exercise at the end called "building a group covenant." This covenant is vitally important to creating a healthy, safe, and meaningful community group.
Next week, (The week of the 15th), my suggestion is to put together a community group "potluck." One of the most powerful things we can do as community groups is to follow the model of Acts 2--which includes at its center the sharing of meals together. Take the time together to plan out who will bring what dish, and don't plan a whole lot more. The goal for this week is to simply share the kind of discussion and friendship that happens of the dinner (or breakfast or lunch) table, and to enjoy one another!
We will be back here with a brand new teaching video on Exodus the week of October 22nd!
